Wall Of Sleep - Slow But Not Dead

Ah, that’s nice. On “Slow But Not Dead” there’s Doom Metal that completely takes pattern from the seventies. WALL OF SLEEP are perfekt for those who adore old BLACK SABBATH but also like old-fashioned stuff like PENTAGRAM or CATHEDRAL. The vocals are queer but in a way that is required for decent Doom Metal. With one or two songs things become ultra slow – but in fact the rocky variant is more their thing. All this fits amazingly, cool hooks, melodies and heavyweight lava riffs, that’s the way things work here. Just listen to the Doom milestone “Ornaments of Heaven” and you’ll know what I mean…


As this is a genre pearl and touches about 90% of all Metal heads rather peripherally, I don’t want to talk for too long. The sip group will kindly embrace the album, the rest doesn’t care about it. But like I said: a definitive genre highlight! (Online May 28, 2004)
